Nice stuff in the mail

More Japanese royalties showed up today, this time for Golden Fleece and End of an Era.

And the May 2006 New York Review of Science Fiction arrived recently, with a nice review of my short-story collection Iterations, saying "Sawyer evokes both the classic sense of wonder and the spirit of exploration ... and is capable of emotional subtlety and emotional impact." (The review comes four years after the book's publication, but, hey, better late than never!)

Tonight is "Third Monday," one of Toronto's two monthly fannish pub nights; I try to make it to both when I'm in town -- and I'm heading off now ("Third Monday" is at Orwell's, 3373 Bloor Street West at Islington, starting at 7:00 p.m. -- everyone is welcome).

In Japanese the title reads: "Sayonara Dinosaurs".

Way cool!

Indeed it does! ;)

And the Japanese edition of FAR-SEER is "Senseishi Afusan No Tomikyo," which is "Astrologer Afsan's Telescope."

By the way, note my untranslatable middle initial in my name: the "J" is rendered as the English character. :)

Sorry I'm going to miss it. I used to go to Orwell's pretty regularly back in the day but not so much since I moved to the UK.
